Menu Plan Monday - 5/14/12

Here's what's cooking at our home this week:

I am "reading" a couple of her cookbooks right now and really enjoy them. She adds in a lot of background info about her family, her ranch and her cowboy husband. They've been fun to read. I now use "El Pato sauce" for all things Mexican instead of the taco seasoning packets with all those not-so-good preservatives.

We have a friend from down South who is a wonderful cook. We loved this meal she made for us a few years back, which is a favorite Southern recipe. It's the only recipe I have for black eyed peas, and they're so good. **You may notice this has been on my menu the last three times. Well, I experimented with dried beans/peas and kept forgetting about the amount of prep time I need for that. I'm not so sure that will be a "shortcut" I'll keep - the dried beans thing.

We seem to have a lot of ground beef and tomato sauce meals, so this brings a little variety my husband will enjoy. We love Indian food and this is simple to make.


I can't wait to try out this recipe for homemade pizza dough and then make this pizza.

Possible Date Night!

Always my night off!
